4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Movie Soundtrack Collection, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magic Movie Hits (Audio CD)
This isn't the sum total of Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack success, but it's a nice little collection with some rare tracks that can't be found on any other collections.
This is probably being ignored on Amazon due to having no picture or track list. I took the risk and was pleasantly surprised, so here's the album's tracklist for interested Giorgio Moroder fans:

1. Love Kills - Freddie Mercury (Metropolis)
2. The Chase - Giorgio Moroder (Midnight Express)
3. Neverending Story (Rare long version) - Limahl (Neverending Story)
4. Take my Breath Away - Berlin (Top Gun)
5. Another Way - Jennifer Rush (Another Way)
6. Meet me Halfway - Kenny Loggins (Over the Top)
7. Lady, Lady, Lady - Joe Esposito (Flashdance)
8. On the Radio - Donna Summer (Foxes)
9. Flashdance...What a Feeling - Diana Dewitt (Flashdance) Not as good as the Irene Cara original, weak production.
10. Cat People (Putting out Fire) - David Bowie (Cat People)
11. Strike Light Lightening - Mr. Big (Navy Seals)
12 Call Me - Blondie (7" version) - Blondie (American Gigolo)
13. Bad Love - Cher (Foxes)
14. No See, No Cry - Chaka Khan (Superman 3)
15. Together in Electric Dreams - Moroder/Oakey (Electric Dreams)
16. I Will be Strong - Eddie Money (Over the Top)
17. Here She Comes - Bonnie Tyler (Metropolis)
18. Listen to your Heart - Koreana (Mamba)

So a really nice collection with some not so obvious track choices. The mastering isn't bad either, most tracks sounding clean and clear. A must for Giorgio Moroder fans to add to the collection. Some tracks sound a bit dated when they have that clumsy, heavy 80's style drumming, which can get a bit annoying on the lesser known tracks and the version of "Flashdance" by Diana Dewitt just doesn't come anywhere near to the great sound or vocal of the original, (no idea why this version now replaces Irene Cara's version on G.M collections, it's a shame the original version is overlooked). The long version of "Neverending Story" more than compensates, it's a lot different to the well-known single mix with extra vocals from the guest backing singer and some more instrumental breaks...lovely. This is the only extended mix, the rest are the single versions, although David Bowie's sublime tension-laden "Cat People" remains as the 6.41 album version, thankfully unedited.
Have enjoyed this collection a lot. Worth a couple of quid of anyone's hard earned cash and is a good showcase of Moroder's soundtrack writing abilities.
